Clarivate Analytics and REDIB collaboration strengthens support for Ibero-American research

 

Philadelphia, PA, September 7, 2017Spanish considered second most visible language in research after English, since 2015*. Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, announced a collaboration with the Red Iberoamericana de Innovación y Conocimiento Científico (REDIB), to deepen the REDIB platform.

The collaboration specifically includes enriching the REDIB journal records indexed within Web of Science Core Collection and providing a journal ranking based on this data enhancement. REDIB is a platform for aggregating scientific and academic content in electronic formats produced in the Ibero-American space, in Spanish, Portuguese, or any other language relevant to each academic community. The REDIB has a clear purpose: promoting technological innovation in publishing-output tools. This purpose, combined with the value coming from Web of Science Core Collection journal indexing and insights, reinforces the continued focus that Clarivate places on supporting researchers and the researcher ecosystem, from discovery through publishing.

“Recipients benefitting from this collaboration are from both the academic community and society at large” said Ramón B. Rodríguez, Scientific Director of REDIB. “In addition, those responsible for scientific policy, as well as those who put it into practice and analyze it, also benefit.”

REDIB is the initiative of a joint venture of CSIC and Universia. Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) is the Spanish National Research Council, a government agency and the largest state institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third largest in Europe. Universia is the largest network of universities in Ibero-America. It comprises 1,407 universities in 23 countries, totaling 19.9 million students and teaching staff.

"With Spanish considered the second most visible language in research, this collaboration aims to strengthen Hispanic research prominence, particularly in social sciences and the Humanities,” said Jessica Turner, global head of the Scientific and Academic Research business at Clarivate Analytics “It’s possible, thanks to the expansion of the iberoamerican scientific publications and its visibility within Emerging Source Citation Index and scheduled expansion of 10 years of archives by the end of 2017."
